We did YE discussions for our group last week. I thought it was fair. Utilization metric is key for VC range.

Promotion-wise, heard it is going to be very tight.

How tight? Not even a few inches?

@M1- like an inch or two, I'm sure you can relate to that

OP, how so? Please explain in detail.

What's your source?

OP - what are u really trying to say? Every year promotions are gonna get tougher as we become more matured as a consulting firm. I have seen this within our own practice.

That makes sense k1 and also confused by what OP is saying, not sure if he is being serious and wants to have a conversation or if he is just a douche bag.

OP - u up for promotion? If yes, what was the feedback at mid year?

An MD was the one who told me, and said "many people will be disappointed" when it comes to promotion.

Yes, and was told I was very much on track

But now uncertain and worried

That's always the case. Not everyone can get promoted. There is a lot that goes into making the final decision. If u were told u were on track why are you worried? Wait till u officially hear back. It's like u getting worried about getting laid off coz the firm missed their target. Take it easy.

How much room for negotiation is there on role level when moving to MBB as a lateral? Currently M2 at a boutique founded by ex-MBB partners. We often compete with MBB. Recruiters at each firm have steered me towards joining at Associate (M) /Consultant (BB) level which I believe is common practice for lateral moves. This would likely result in a small pay cut for me, even at A3/C3. All have suggested a 6-12 month window to Manager promotion is possible. Would appreciate some advice, thanks!
